Steven Carrelli - Improvised Landmarks and
Temporary Structures

     

           

           

                 

           

     


Containers, distances, shadows, and associative thinking, the poetry of solid objects, the surrealism in slightly altered perspective, measurement, mathematics, displacement... a sense of intransigence. Bags, all those bags, and packages deprived of natural light, seemingly in media res, but arrested. The space between the objects in Steven CarrelliΒΉs work is time, not only temporal disjunction, but the way time inheres to things, to lines, to texture, to almost obsessive detail that brings the object to life, but also brings us to the sense of time etched in process.
